About d'Ussé Cognac XO

The Otard family can be traced back to the mid 9th century, to a Norwegian warrior, Ottar. James O’Tard was created a Baron in 1701 after fighting alongside Louis XIV of France. His great-grandson, Jean-Baptiste Antoine Otard established the French Cognac house in 1795, in his name. The Château de Cognac he purchased was built in the tenth century to protect the villagers from Norman invaders.

The Cognac house has remained in the family ever since. Situated in the Cognac region overlooking the Charente, the historical Château de Cognac castle is the birthplace of French King François I, where cognac production has been taking place since 1796. The chateau was chosen largely due in part to its cellars, which provided unique properties for the aging of the cognacs. D’Ussé Cognac is a product of Bacardi that is produced at the Chateau de Cognac. Released in June of 2012, in New York, D’Ussé is a collaboration with hip-hop mogul Jay-Z.

This cognac is blended meticulously by Maître de Chai Michel Casavecchia who hand-selects the finest eaux-de-vie from the cellars of the Château de Cognac to craft the unique blend of d’Ussé XO Cognac. His unyielding standards require the eaux-de-vie to be aged ten years or more in French oak barrels to assure the utmost complexity and depth in flavor. “d’Ussé XO Cognac delivers rich flavor notes of ripe blackberry and apricot, layered with hints of dark chocolate and walnut, culminating in an exceptionally balanced finish” (producer). This incredibly aromatic and inviting XO is bottled in an luxe black vile, emblazoned with a medieval, regal silver double cross.

About Cognac

Cognac is a type of brandy produced in the Cognac region of France.
Because the French take it very seriously, there are numerous rules cognac makers have to follow not to fall “short” into the brandy category.


The white wine from the specific grapes (Ugni blanc) has to be doubly distilled in a copper pot still before being aged for at least two years in oak casks from which the wood can only come from two specific forests in France (Limousin or Tronçais).


Depending on the age, there are three types of cognac, the youngest V.S. (Very Special), V.S.O.P. (Very Superior Old Pale), and the X.O. (Extra Old)
